Creamy Dreamy Tomato Soup

When I went vegan I had the benefit of consulting with a team of registered dietitians that also happen to be my coworkers. They have been amazing supporters and a wealth of knowledge. In addition to helping me develop a meal plan, they often share great recipes. Here’s an especially delicious one! Creamy Dreamy Tomato…

Simple Salad

Dinner tonight was a simple salad accompanied by the new Daiya Creamy Caesar Dressing, sautéed Gardein chick’n strips, freshly cut corn, cucumber, and spinach.  It sounds like I’m trying to be really healthy by eating spinach salad for dinner. The reality is this light dinner left me with enough MyFitnessPal calories to have a vegan…

Spaghetti Dinner

The classic weeknight, go to, whip it up quick meal. It also happens to be just as simple to veganize. Just leave out the meat and enjoy! Too much too fast? Ok. Other alternatives include meat substitutes like veggie crumbles or my new favorite roasted eggplant. Give it a try. You won’t miss the meat…

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes 

Life has been hectic so my menus have been pretty basic lately. Over the past couple of months (more than a few times 😳), I’ve heard my husband say “you know you haven’t made ____ in awhile”.  Well Labor Day seemed like the perfect opportunity to scratch one of those recipes off to do the…

Eating Through The Day

Today I’m giving you a peek at what I eat. As a busy working wife and mom, I keep quick, easy, and nutritious meals in my rotation. None of the meals shown took long to prepare but they were all delicious and filling. So filling, I didn’t even have room for after dinner dessert. Check it…

The Way the Cookie Crumbles

I shared in my Kitchen Therapy post, that measuring, mixing, and sharing the delicious product is therapeutic for me. Well, I  needed that therapy this week and my treatment was baking Chloe Coscarelli’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is an awesome recipe for a number of reasons. They are delicious! You have all of the ingredients in…

Got Tofu?

Then Scramble It!  If you’ve got tofu then you’ve probably made this vegan recipe classic. The Tofu Scramble. It’s vegan comfort food. Filling and satisfying. A quick google search will yield a wide variety of recipe options but the great thing about a tofu scramble is if you’ve got tofu you can scramble it! Just…

Quick Meal & A Tip

Quick meals can be a weeknight lifesaver!  One way to shorten your cooking time is to prepare a large batch of rice or pasta. The rice I used for tonight’s vegan eats is leftover from Sunday dinner. All I had to do today was stir fry my premixed frozen vegetables and add my protein source….

Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine

Don’t take my vegan membership card! I have a confession. I’m vegan and I watched Forks Over Knives for the first time last night. I know that’s probably one of the first videos a new vegan should check out and I’m not sure why I’m just getting around to it. I knew about it, I…

Reminiscing on Strawberry Fields

I know. I know. Summer isn’t officially over but Labor Day passing and the leaves falling in my yard say otherwise. And right now I’ve got a craving for one of the most delicious summer treats. Strawberries. This overflowing bucket of strawberries was handpicked by yours truly. I took the kiddos on a field trip of sorts to…
